If you love mushrooms and pasta this recipe is for you. We picked up some large closed cup mushrooms last week and decided to make a dry warm pasta dish for dinner a couple of nights back. The dish is incredibly quick to prepare and tastes great.
What do I need to make it?
- Pasta of choice for 2 persons
- 10-12 large closed cup mushrooms quartered
- 4 cloves of garlic minced
- 1 small shallot chopped
- `1 Thai red chilli finely chopped
- 1 tsp dry oregano
- Large knob of butter
- Handful of fresh parsley to garnish
- Salt and pepper to taste
How much will I make?
How do I make it?
Cook the pasta with some salt and olive oil and keep aside (save some of the cooking liquor for later). Heat a large pan with butter – saute the garlic and red chilli for a minute before adding in the shallots. Cook over medium heat till the shallots turn translucent. Sprinkle a teaspoon of the oregano, give it a good mix and then add the mushrooms. Cook for ten minutes or till mushrooms begin to take on a bit of colour. Adjust the seasoning and garnish with fresh chopped parsley. Add the boiled pasta to the dish – if it sticks to the pan use some of the cooking liquor to loosen up the dish. Serve with a sprinkling of grated Parmesan cheese.
